Halkyn East

Halkyn East lies in the community of Halkyn in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ21306930. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18093 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Silver (1891-1910)

Carboniferous Limestone.

Little evidence remains of the large-scale mining operation of the East Halkyn Company in the area of Berth-ddu. Evidence of workings has been lost to the 1970s Derelict Land Reclamation Scheme proposed by Clwyd County Council. In 1928, the mine was incorporated into the sett of the Halkyn District United Mines.

The underground diesel railway of the 1928 Halkyn Company served the workings of the sett.

A drainage channel runs from the north-west, undercutting the Rhosesmor-Halkyn road, which supersedes the mine, and runs downhill south-eastwards to the mine area, which now comprises solely of bulldozed waste. The sett was drained by the Deep Level Tunnel.
